Owners of one of Samsung’s current leading smartphones, the Samsung Galaxy S will rejoice today as the long awaited Android upgrade – Version 2.2 Froyo – has started hitting devices and will be available to all by the end of this month. Despite the Galaxy S being one of Samsung’s leading smartphones, the Froyo update which has been available on other devices (Samsung and other competitors) has taken quite a while to finally reach it.
Samsung’s Official UK Twitter said today; “Froyo starts rolling out today; everyone will have it by the end of Nov. To prepare, get the latest version of Kies.” Kies is a piece of software required to obtain the update.
The update to Froyo 2.2 means that Samsung Galaxy S owners can now make use of a number of new features including; the very popular flash support, Google Maps GPS navigation with voice guidance, and device tethering.
However, this rather late update may be made inferior very soon, as the upcoming version 2.3 Gingerbread has been reported to be closer to release than ever, with the next update from Google’s OS being sent to developers in under a week on November 11th. So what are you Samsung Galaxy S users waiting for? Get your long time coming update now before you have to feel inferior to all those devices which may get Gingerbread earlier than you.
